Shah Rukh Khan, one of Bollywood's most successful stars, celebrates his 52nd birthday today. The superstar, who has completed over 25 years in the Hindi film industry, wishes to 'entertain the audiences' and this is what motivates him to keep working, reports news agency PTI. "I look forward to entertaining myself and through that entertaining lots of people for a lot of time. Not for the reason of material or commerce, but because I feel from inside. I need to make sure that I do this with the belief that I have to keep doing this for the rest of my life. Otherwise, I can lose interest in it," SRK said.
